Several people attending the Rally For Sanity did not think so.

    No he's a wealth redistributor. Take by force from one group of people and give it to another group of peope that HE decides is more worthy.

    Obama decides where tax money is spent? Really? Where did you get that harebrained idea?

    Congress writes the laws on taxes and spending. The president can only sign them. Didn't you manage to stay awake in high school civics class?

    Congress passes laws - it does not mean that they write them. Obamacare is the best example - Congress members were asked to pass the law in order to find out what it contained.

    I wonder how many lobbyists collaborated on 2700 page bill.
    Did they mention this practice in your high school civics class?

    Claiming that lobbyists write laws (partially true) has nothing to do with what obama does or does not do.

    Obama influences laws, certainly. That's expected. He sure as shit isn't writing them though.

    If obama really wanted to get his way on things, he'd just pull a gwb and do whatever he wants without bothering to ask congress, or use signing statements to change laws as he sees fit.

    Obama has used signing statements, but nowhere near as often as GWB. Signing statements have ZERO legal weight, they just indicate the president's stance on the law.
